DSLR Hack – How to Scan your Old Negatives using a DSLR and Toilet Paper Rolls!

Do you have old photos in negatives that you want digitized? Your best option is probably get one of these Film Negative Scanners on Amazon.

OR, if you prefer and you own a $1000 DSLR camera lens, grab some paper rolls, polarizing filters and do it DIY style.

Now slides can be “scanned” into any DSLR relatively quickly provided that there is a good even light source behind the film. You will not have the power of hardware based tools like dust-removing-ICE, but you will have Lightroom, Photoshop or your favorite editing software to adjust and manipulate the images.
